The Lynn Canyon suspension bridge will be closed until next year due to maintenance.

According to the District of North Vancouver, the repairs will begin on November 19 in order for crews to replace the bridge’s decking.

The repairs were initially set to begin in September, but the work was delayed.

Visitors should note that during the construction period, the suspension bridge will be fully closed. Alternate pedestrian routes will be available.

The District says the work is expected to be completed by early 2020.

In the meantime, those looking for a similar suspension bridge experience can check out the Seymour River Suspension bridge, which spans across the Seymour River in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve.

The bridge, which opened in December of last year, allows hikers, cyclists, and dog walkers to cross the Seymour River and reconnects the Twin Bridge Trail with the Fisherman’s Trail.

It is located 100 metres upstream of the old Twin Bridge, which was dismantled in 2014 after it was permanently flooded from a nearby rockslide into the river that raised water levels across much of the river system.
